IMEI Number Fraud[edit]

In June 2020, it was revealed by the cybercrime unit of Meerut Police that more than 13,500 Vivo smartphones used in India were running on the same IMEI number. The IMEI number is a 15-digit code meant to be unique to every mobile device. In 2017, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India issued a notification stating that all mobile devices would have a unique IMEI number, failure to which in the form of manipulation or tampering could lead to a three-year jail.
The events lead to the police filing a case against Vivo and its service centre. The lapse reportedly came to light when a police officer gave his mobile phone to the staff at the cybercrime unit for examination, as the phone was not working properly despite being repaired at a Vivo service centre in Meerut. The cybercrime unit found that the IMEI number of the device was different from the one printed on the box, and then forwarded the IMEI number to the telecommunications company providing the SIM service for the handset and asked for the relevant data. The company informed that as of 24 September 2019, the same IMEI number had been running on 13,557 mobile phones in different states of the country. The Meerut police reportedly handed a notice to Vivo India’s nodal officer Harmanjit Singh under Section 91 of the CrPC, and also registered a case under Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code.[48][49][50][51]
